Wear OS by Google API 28 final release

Read more →

Today, we are launching the Wear OS API 28 emulator. Developers can use this to test their apps against the redesigned Wear OS notification stream, as well as other API 28 features such as app standby buckets and sensor privacy. We received a lot of constructive feedback during the developer preview, and it made a huge difference in the final product. We are thankful for your support. Please keep the feedback coming!

Two questions:

- where shall we go from here after Google+ is gone?
- where shall we get information on updating our apps for latest Wear OS features for new watches (ambient mode has seconds, etc)?


May I ask +Hoi Lam what's going on with payments on Play Store lately?
It's a nightmare, I am getting load of mails and bad reviews claiming that people pays several times and that they are refused to pay/install app on the watch.
Who is going to pay for my time trying to solve all those cases, who will clear my reviews from this mess?

Updated to not use GoogleApiClient to Wearable.getDataClient(this), now when using proguard it just crashes. Cannot figure it out, tried added stuff to proguard but cannot sort it.

Crash is: Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException: throw with null exception
at<clinit>(Unknown Source)

Anyone have this problem before?

"Always-on Display Scheduler" app. (Eg, Off at night.)
A) Been done?
B) Possible?

I don't know where else to post this question but my Fossil Q Explorist gen 3 is running Wear OS 2.2 yet I am still on 8.0 Oreo on the watch with a July security update. From what I have read online the new Wear OS "H" or "Pie" update is 2.2. Am I incorrect or is something not right in my watch?
Thanks for your time.

Since the Wear OS team has done nothing to let developers know how to use the new Ambient mode with the second hand, I did some digging into the source code of the Fossil Sport and decompiled watch face classes and figured out how to do this.

I've added the second hand functionallity to my hubcaps watch face:

Please add this to your watch faces developers! Let me know if you have any problems or questions.

I have not seen any guides for adding an animating second hand in ambient mode for Wear OS watches running the 3100 processor. Can we get instructions on how to do this please?

Hello Everyone,
I'm trying to develop a WearOS App, that has to update the screen every second (since it displays a timer). I've read all documentation about this that i could find, and i basically set an Alarm that schedules an Update in 1 sec. But still, the App only Updates every 5 seconds. Am i missing something? Is 5sec the minimum?

Hello everyone, I am new to Android Wear app development. I wish to know what watches support debugging? Almost all Android phones support debugging support for developers but I am not sure if that is the case with watches too. What watch do you recommend for best development/debugging experience? Thanks for your kind help!
